There are a few checks. Try the #1 first and then proceed to the next one til you get water. Here are a few checks:

  1. Turn off the supply and disconnect the supply line to the dishwasher, turn the water on to flush the line and to check for flow
  2. If you have water to to the supply line, your problem is the water solenoid. Replace the water solenoid.
  3. Turn off the supply, and disconnect the supply line at the shut off, turn the water on to check for flow.
  4. Shut the water off to the house, disassemblehe shut off, clean debris out of shut off. It may need to be flushed. I recommend using a hose to direct the flow into a 5 gallon bucket while someone cycles the water supply.
  5. Replacement of shut off is next.

Please rate this solution.

Whirpool DU1055xts water does not drain after wash


There is a fourth screw under the spray arm. Here are some instructions I put together to clean out the pump. But I do not think this will help the drain. The drain hose or drain pump could be restricted.

The best way to find the restriction is work backwards. Start at the sink where the dishwasher drain hose connects, take that connection apart and try to drain into a bucket. If it does not drain the work your way back to the dishwasher checking at every connection point.

This link will be for the pump cleaning.

A grainy grit remains on all my dishes. It's in the bottom of the dishwasher when the cycle is over. what is it and how can i fix it

I took everything apart in the bottom of the dishwasher, washed them and put them back together and now have clean dishes. I needed a star head to remove the screws, which I had. A Phillips screwdriver won't work. Food and gunk were clogging the drains and screens, even the spray wands. For the very bottom I used a shop vac to get all the dirty water out and then cleaned the small drain.

Bosch dishwasher SHX46 won't fill with water

My model is actually a SHX46 but I was able to piece together some advice off of this site. This is what I did. I removed the toe plate and then I soaked up all the water that I could out of the white pan at the bottom. Then I unhooked the water supply line so that I could pull the dishwasher out. Once I got it out, I tipped it forward to drain out the rest of the water. I then unhooked the drain line that was connected to the disposal and cleaned it out with a "Snake line" I then hooked everything back up and it worked. Thanks so much for this website, I know it saved me a ton of $$$$$$$$$.

Lower spray arm won't spin

Sounds like you may have put it together wrong. I would just take the arm back off and make sure that it all fits together right. A little tip for you too. Dishwashers will clog up all the time with water deposits and food gunk. There are all those expensive cleaners out on the market but the best and cheapest way to clean them is with white vinegar. Simply pour it into the dishwasher when it is empty and run it on the pots and pans setting on hot. Always make sure to pre heat your water too by running the sink till it starts steaming. This will make it easier for your dishwasher to heat the water. If you don't, then when you turn on the dishwasher it starts to fill with cold water and has to heat it on its own. Run the vinegar though through it at least once a month or so and it will extend the life of the dishwasher. Hope this helps. Just try taking that arm back off though and putting it back together making sure everything is fitting properly. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

Make certain that the airgap is not plugged or obstructed at all. The airgap is the plastic thing that screws into the sink that the grey drain hose is connected to. I had an almond jammed into mine and it prevented the diswasher from draining properly. I took it out and cleaned it all out with a wire and then put everything back together. Problem solved after 10 minutes!!!

Dishwasher will not drain

We took it all the way apart and cleaned it really well in the bottom of the dishwasher. Then we put it back together. Then we removed the hose from the disposal and suctioned it with the wet/dry vac to remove any clogs, then put that back together.

Ran dishwasher with Tang in both powder cups to clean it, and it's running fine now.

Need help with GE triton

Good day Cathy, Your model, when you say, the back conduit.. would that be the filter/screen (plastic piece) in the far back, that has 1 screw on the left and right sides, and 2 close together... when you remove the four screws, in the area, just behind the two middle screws, is what GE calls, a Collection Chamber. The center rod, is spring loaded and as the water drains, its supposed to push upward, and seal off that screened-in area, that will force the water out the drain line.
( See if you can push it up and down) what can happen, is a piece of (anything-toothpicks, seeds, glass, plastic) gets lodged in between the area that is supposed to be sealed, and then the unit will not drain completely.. after several attempts to clean, it can fill the inner tub.
What you need to do, is to remove the center plunger (that rod sticking through the middle ) to do that the whole center piece must be removed (the rod comes out with it) it will unscrew, counter-clockwise... to get it started is the tough part.. I use an open-end wrench, where it can be held to engage the left and right little tabs, down there (by that rod again) and I use another open end wrench on the one I'm holding against those tabs (automotive guys call it double-wrenching--using one wrench to turn another).. check rubber piece on plunger,make sure its sealing. If it appears, plunger good, & you can't see that something was blocking it from closing. Put it all back together, and test it (you might have) Your next choice isn't fun. in order to replace the collection chamber, you must pull the entire unit out to get to the two 5/16" screws, and replace the chamber or I'm not suggesting you by-pass it, but its been done... the upper port on the pump (that hose leads to the C Chamber, ) is where the water drains on models that don't have a collection chamber. There's a lot of information here, I hope it was helpful, I'm new to this station, but I worked for 25 yrs for the kind folks, who created your project. If I can or you need me to, I have no problem with assisting you further.. Good luck, I think you can do it...

Dishwasher not draining

The drain pump maybe jammed - this happened to me; a small piece of chicken bone got past the filter.

I took the bottom panel off to access the pump, removed the debris, put it all together and it's worked fine since (over a year). It's a messy job, with all the water etc, but it's taught me to clean the filter regularly :-)


If in doubt put your hand deep in your pocket and call out a tech.
